Our yarn bases


The Blue Brick's yarn bases are selected for beautiful drape, stitch definition and colour vibrance. The bases are all springy and soft, and come in generous yardage.
All our bases are available in both full skeins and 'Twins' - two mirrored gradients for matched projects such as mittens and socks. 

Escarpment DK
Escarpment DK is a double-knitting yarn; slimmer than worsted but thicker than sport at 11 wraps per inch. This yarn offers fantastic drape and is a good fit for sweaters, blankets and accessories. Because it is 100% merino with no nylon content, this yarn takes colour the brightest out of our three bases.
